Through Ed Stockard's Viewfinder Our offering on this numerologically momentous day: the ninth post this season featuring a glimpse through Ed Stockard's camera lens.

Ed visited Ilulissat a few days ago to clean and organize our storage locker.  In addition to the work, he enjoyed "a few nice sunsets over Disko Bay, a couple nice walks around town."

You can enjoy them too:

These pups have a big role to play in Ilulissat's local economy. "In Ilulissat, which is also known as Jakobshavn, there are 4,500 people living today and at least 3,500 sled dogs, which underlines the importance of the dogsled as a means of transport even in a large modern town."--From Greenland.com

Nature's first green is gold, / Her hardest hue to hold. / Her early leaf's a flower; / But only so an hour. / Then leaf subsides to leaf. / So Eden sank to grief, / So dawn goes down to day. / Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
